[Best Syndication News] The giant squid have returned to the Southern California shores, with many of the squid being caught by fishermen weighing in at 20-30 pounds. The giant squid can reach up to 7feet long and weigh up to 100 pounds.

The giant squid species is called Humboldt, Jumbo Squid, Jumbo Flying Squid, or Diablo Rojo (which means Red Devil). They tend to live in warmer waters, however since El Niño weather patterns have come to be, there has been some migration patterns seen with this species. Typically they like to live in deep ocean water but they have been making their way inland more. Once in the Fall of 2004, there was between 1,000 to 1,500 squid washed up on the Long Beach Peninsula in southwest Washington. They have been seen as far as north as Alaska.

[Best Syndication News] Shaun White's wipe out came during his practice run for the snowboard superpipe final round at the Winter X Games which was being held just on the outskirts of Aspen, Colorado. Luckily White didn't get more injured. He took a scrap to the face when his helmet came off as his head hit the ice. He only suffered from a scraped up jaw and cheek.

The doctors checked out White before he continued on in the competition. He checked out ok and went on to win by doing the Double McTwist 1260 successfully winning his third straight championship.

The Double McTwist 1260 was the trick that caused him to wipe out earlier during practice. I bet his mom was holding her breath and praying for him. Just like everyone else was after this crash landing.
